GGF Chief Executive, Nigel Rees, is urging the Treasury to offer better incentives for homeowners to make their homes more energy efficient

The organisation warns that rolling back ECO as a cost cutting exercise in reaction to rising energy prices, will hit vulnerable and low-income households hardest and could have severe consequences for jobs and production in the glass and glazing industry.
 
The GGF advises the government to reduce the cost of energy efficient windows and bring the price closer to that of other energy efficient products by cutting the 20% VAT rate down to 5%.

They are also outlining their concerns over the delays in domestic construction work after a transfer of ownership of private sewers and lateral drains to water and sewage companies, leaving homeowners with the task of obtaining permission prior to building over drains and sewers on their properties.
